Fresh off the release of that pristine all-white PK overseas this past weekend, adidas Originals returns with what promises to be one of the most sought after silhouettes this summer with a simple, understated “Core Black” colorway. It isn’t that hard to see why the adidas NMD series is thriving. The sleek design sees the perfect combination of Primeknit woven technology and a supremely comfortable Boost-injected bottom while unique three stripe branding accents alternate between different languages ranging from Japanese, German, and more on the midsole and heel tab.
Introducing the shoe of Summer 2016. The Primeknit has managed to captivate quite the audience thanks to its lightweight and comfortable slip-on woven upper, patented Boost cushioning system, and just the right amount of vibrant pops along the unique midsole unit for a truly unique aesthetic. While the NMD series has expanded with the likes of Chukkas and City Socks, there’s nothing like an original. The “OG White” colorway almost hits Triple White territory if it weren’t for the bright hits of red and royal alongside an array of world language branding on the heel tab in a contrasting black.
adidas Originals is back with a brand new in a tonal grey perfect for any occasion. The adidas NMD_R1 has always been on the simple side of the NMD series thanks to the fact that the pair skips out on any trace of Primeknit and instead opts for a traditional slip-on mesh base complete with standard three stripe branding on the side. A rubberized heel matches the Boost outsole in white while classic trefoil branding lingers on the tongue for a classic feature.
Those in the market for the are going to need to stay alert if they hope to grab a pair, because the shoe seems to keep popping up unannounced at retailers around the US. Just yesterday we saw a surprise launch of two new colorways of the women’s NMD R1, and now the same mesh construction for guys in a blue colorway already dropped and sold out at Notre in Chicago.
The adidas NMD is loved the world over thanks to its simple yet sleek design and perfected technologies in Primeknit and Boost. The world tour continues with this latest tonal tan release that adds some French branding to the midsole to coincide with German and Japanese three stripe callouts on the heel tabs. The adidas Originals NMD has thrived with bold and bright patterns on the woven upper, but this subdued casual colorway is subtle enough to match any wardrobe selection.
